I did my first tub seal an bearing when i was 15 at my dads shop. almost 15 years later i have prob did 200-300 of these suckers. You see, when i got into this bus. i was doing delivery's and when i wasn',t my dad was teaching me Dependable care washers and dryers. We use to rebuild all of them that came back and sell them as Re-built, not used. good money and learned a ton about these things. I can get one stripped down and back together in about 30-40 minutes if everything comes apart easy. These machine's were built like tanks, and should never be discarded as long as you can get the parts for repair.
